  1. Support Themable CSS Without Having To Customize The Master Page

    For light-touch customisations, we simply want to use SharePoint Themes and also add our own Themable CSS to sites.

    Unfortunately the only way to add a Themable CSS to a site is add a CssRegistration control to the Master Page referencing the Themable CSS file. We want to avoid having to customise the master page simply to add a Themable CSS link.

    It is contrary to current Microsoft guidance to modify the master page unnecessarily, and in doing so, in the best case we lock ourselves out of any future enhancements as SharePoint evolves that are dependent upon an upgraded…

    • Schedule page publication

      It would be great if we could schedule a date for a page, article or news story to be published.

      Thanx

        • Allow synchronization of Exchange Calendars with Sharepoint Sites (Rooms/Resources/Personal)

          We would like the ability to view our Office 365 Resource/Room calendars in our Sharepoint Site... Adding the rooms to every single persons calendar in Outlook is time consuming and does not scale very well... I would like to have a Sharepoint site that displays ALL of our Conference Room calendars and allows users to edit/change/add meetings to these calendars in Sharepoint. This way we can centrally view all rooms at once and not have to view them in Outlook. This is possible in OnPrem but not Office365 which just blows my mind.

          • Allow improving page loads

            We tried to enable the page output cache on our Intranet (O365) but didn't not get any performance improvement. We enabled the debug and noticed the following message “8 Output cache not used. Reason: User can view an unpublished version of the current page”. We would like to be able to set the CacheForEditRights settings, but this is disabled through web.config settings. The link to the Cache Profiles list is also hidden online, but we were able to create a new profile anyway with this set (Allow writers to view cached content).

            Since there's already a check if the page…

              Make 'Check In and Out' buttons to be easier to reach - just 2 steps - 1) select the file, 2) check out / in the file.

              • Member is not able to publish a page within the page view itself

                Using SharePoint Online, in a site collection with the publishing feature enabled, in the "Pages" library with the content approval enabled, a user of the "Members" group ("Contribute" permission level) is not able to publish a page after creating it within the page view itself ("Publish it" link button). However, that user is able to click the "Publish" button that appear on the "Pages" library when you click the ellipsis next to the page that the user created.

                After contacting MS support, this is the official answer that they gave me to this:

                  • Hide structural navigation choice to power users

                    As structural navigation has a high negative performance impact specially in SPO publishing sites, it would make sense not to allow to switch from managed to structural navigation in the navigation settings UI. Instead the structural navigation could be activated via a powershell command only.

                        • Fix the WYSIWYG Editor and the HTML canvas on Publishing Site Pages

                          Does MS not realize that the WYSIWYG editor and the Rich Text authoring of page content on Share Point Online is simply appalling.
                          Not talking modern sites, not talking communication sites - just traditional publishing sites and pages. That is where all of the professional ECM, publishing and branding happens in an enterprise. The editor and pages are buggy, randomly don't save changes, inject styles, restyles existing, create dirty and non-standard html. images don't publish with the pages. It's a nightmare trying to author content without knowing html and jumping into direct source editing. This problem was solved in the…

                              • Promote page - Specify News Site

                                The new "Promote" functionality is a great step forward. Per presentations from Ignite & elsewhere, I understand the plan is to include the functionality to create a "newsletter" of multiple articles, etc. So I look forward to seeing this functionality evolve.

                                One item that would improve the delivered functionality, is the ability to specify what site to post your page as News onto.

                                Promote > Your Page as News on another site > Specify Site to promote on> Add promotional Copy (Auto-include a linking thumbnail of page)

                                Example: We have broken our intranet ecosystem into the following sites/categories:

                                  • Add option to discard draft in publishing page notification bar

                                    If you edit a page to view something (maybe you need to check a web part) and then close without saving, if auto checkout is on, the file is still saved as a draft. The yellow notification bar shows a link to publish the page. If the notification bar also included discard draft, it would be so much easier to discard. The way it is now requires navigating to the library, selecting the page, and discarding checkout.

                                      • Improve performance of classic Publishing Sites in Office 365

                                        Enterprise intranets rely on the publishing feature found on classic Publishing Sites. As soon as you enable the publishing feature in SharePoint Online the page load times drastically increases. Page load times are also erratic, sometimes reasonable fast, sometimes painfully slow.

                                        It is impossible to deliver a fast intranet when the underlying SharePoint pages takes so long to load. In the end, user experience is suffering and customers complain.

                                        On the same topic, Image Renditions are also painfully slow in SharePoint Online, likely because the caching mechanism does not work causing image renditions to be generated on every request.

                                        • Delete/remove old news feeds

                                          It would be ideal if we coul completely detlete(remove) published news items.
                                          For instance, I am testing out the page after having some technical difficulties postingto the news feed, now I cannot remove my testing posts. It looks very unprofessional and this is a public group for our new hires.
